This past weekend, we neatly lined up with a few hundred of our closest friends, received our 2 oz. tasting cup with suitable grace, and proceeded to sprint into the tasting hall without a backward glance.
Yes, it was Beer Fest 2008.
Hosted by the Beer Advocate and Harpoon Brewery, this event gathered 75 brewers from all over the United States offering 300 craft beers between them. No, we were not quite able to sample all 300 beers. But we did make a nice dent in the selections!
